I kind of actually feel back kicking Purdue while they are down. Not that they have ever been really good, but there have been some great games throughout the years headlined by the Halloween night game of '98 and the Starks fumble return of '04.
I guess looking at their 2010 schedule thus far, the Boilermakers are pretty much par for the course with a 4-4 record. Although not according to Sherwin. He is the latest in 'student previews' to discuss the Purdue season through a game by game opponent breakdown.
Here are some of his highlights:
"Last year, Notre Dame came to Purdue and was able to get out of a tough one...luckily. This time around though, the Claussen-less Notre Dame I think, will not be up for the challenge that the Purdue Boilermakes will have."
"Purdue hosts Western Illinois...Western Illinois, I'm assuming is not too good. I don't know much about Western Illinois, I don't know if you do, but I doubt it."
And for his Wisconsin preview, he predicts the Badgers will win because Clay is a beast. At least he knows a little something.
Please watch the entire video...he went through great lengths in researching the Purdue opponents, even calling the IU game the greatest game of the year. Maybe it's because they will actually win. Needless to say, Sherwin predicts a 9-3 season for the Boilermakers.
